Thanks!  The containers holding the markers, pens, chalk, etc are tin cans.  I threaded some zip ties from behind the pegboard into the holes before the pegboard was installed.  Then, I drilled a couple holes next to each other near the top of the tin can, corresponding to where the zip ties were.  I attached the zip ties inside the cans (I only ended up using the top zip tie).  I covered the cans with scrapbook paper.  I took a picture to show you.

2  quartney's Craft Room in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by quartney on: May 12, 2009 01:54:15 PM
Just wanted to share pictures of my craft room.  It may provide some ideas or inspiration for others!


I used doors that people left at the curb for the garbage pickup as desks.  I used pipe from Home Depot inserted into metal toilet flanges as legs for the tables.  I bought clear sheets of acrylic on top of the doors as table tops.

The purple table is waist-high, so it's great for gift wrapping or cutting fabric ... activities you don't want to do sitting down.

[I share this room with cats, unfortunately ... hence the cat scratching tree and litterbox!]

The sewing zone ... spools of thread, gift wrap, notecards, and ribbon are on the pegboard, as well as too many scissors!  The next project is reupholstering the sewing chair.


The computer zone ...


Here is the "before" shot.  It was difficult to find the supplies I needed to get anything done.

I just finished my bench to coordinate with the bar posted a few years back.  The bench took 2 years Smiley  Glad to be done with it!!!

This was an awesome tutorial.  This was the 1st project ever that I did not need to use my seam-ripper, because your directions were so awesome!  I had my doubts ... especially about the handles.  And I learned about the "french seam"--amazing!

Thank you so so much for sharing, Queen Smiley

It is strong enough to cart around my full-grown cat, too!

I looked for them all over charleston and couldn't find them.  The maker is Alexander Henry

We got the hawaiian pin up girls.  I also LOVE the camouflage girls--perfect for the military, right?:

6  Quartney Sha Sha Ribbon Dream Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by quartney on: February 28, 2006 07:01:02 AM
Dearest Birgitta/Buglake!

Thanks so much for the kick-ass tute!



I love my purse (and I made one for a crafting swap buddy in the UK).

I made the pink purse exactly according to your directions (substituting 7/8" ribbon, though); from that I could tell what modifications I needed to make for the green purse ... and then I re-did the pink purse Wink

I couldn't find any purse "feet" in the stores, and the office brad was not tall enough to actually protect the bottom of the purse.  So I bought some cheap wooden beads, and some office brads that were 2" long:



Also, the purse straps/handles were too flimsy when only ribbon was used, so I bought some cotton webbing and attached that to the back of the ribbon.  It works perfectly.



Many thanks, Buglake!!!

it's a flat-top bar.  What I had to do was make a rim out of duct-tape to hold the epoxy.  Then, peel off the duct tape.  The epoxy will have rough edges at the top.  Then, make more epoxy and wait till it gets super thick, and paint a "lip" around the edge.  Let that dry, and pour one more coat within this lip.  It will make everything seamless.

does that make any sense?

I made this bar a few months ago, using the resin/epoxy method, as well.



Did the author of this thread still need to know where to find the stuff/the name of it?

Ericalm, did you get your table figured out?  I know of an article (in a book I have) that tells you how to make lucite tables that I can send on to you, if needed.

So fantastic!  I might steal your idea about the cat skull!  That's so funny, and it totally looks like one.

By the way, nice stitiches!



Thanks!  Here's my file, if you want to use it:
